Happy Birthday Josh






 


Your eyes shine,
like lanterns in the dark,
illuminating my soul.
The day you were born,
I knew my heart would never be
the same.
My soul sang,
I found home.
I paint the sky,
I reach for the stars,
it's your birthday.
The canvas of our life,
abstract, vibrant with color.
We have grown,
through tears and laughter,
curve-balls and hurdles.
We weathered,
high tides,
low tides,
pulling a red wagon
filled with dreams.
I wish your road is lighter .
I wish your life is filled with wander.
I wish you love,
everyday of your life.
Your eyes humble,
you have not learned
to embrace how great you are.
I knew all along,
your noble heart,
your healing hands,
carry the strength of your spirit.
Your soul dancing,
majestic,
beautiful.
Son, I look into your eyes,
you are the right I have done 
in this world.
My love infinite,
swept in awe,
my little baby boy,
you grew into a great man.
Happy birthday, my love.



Dear Joshua, happy 27th birthday. We are so proud of you, even if you are rolling your eyes right now because you don't embrace yet how great you are. We love you with all our heart.

  15. Aren't we fortunate to have raised children who grew into adults who realized their potential? What a gift, challenge, education, enrichment it is to have a family.
